MCA Pandemic Task Force

Johor MCA in collaboration with non-governmental organisations (NGOs) has set up the MCA Pandemic Task Force to help the local community, especially those who have lost their jobs due to the Covid-19 pandemic, find new employment.

Johor MCA Government Coordinating Affairs chairman Michael Tay said the programme is a joint initiative between MCA and Johor Indian Business Association (JIBA) and the Johor Consumers Movement Association, which have received a total of 1,030 complaints related to job loss due to the pandemic since March.

Tay said being dependent on only one job, namely those working in Singapore, and the loss of income would lead to psychological and social problems.

“The MCA Pandemic Task Force initiative aims to provide a platform to coordinate and monitor the provision of job matching opportunities, as well as assist the target group.

“We expect to receive more than 1,000 applications through this platform for the first three to six months, and we encourage employers to come to us if they’re looking for workers.

“Training opportunities are also offered for those who want to explore new fields such as services, health, small and medium-sized industries and Information Technology,” Tay said when met at his office in Johor Bahru here today.

For more information, visit the Pandemic Task Force Facebook page or visit the JIBA office. The job matching form can be downloaded from FB and the completed forms can be emailed to pandemictaskforce.jobseekers@gmail.com or WhatsApp (017-201 8982)
